im glad google maps is becoming more friendly. i always found the menus to be rather crass and offensive.
i dig the new design.

I like how google has united their products under "Play" but it still confuses me that it just... happened. like, out of no where. good choice tho

Wow, I just updated Google Maps, and was prompted to agree to google conditions, I was like accept. Than when i went back to my home screen the Google market icon is different. I dont really like the app nor the "play"

Not a bad thing to update the menu, don't see this as a ground breaker. The biggest issue I have with Google Maps is the bloatware that comes with it, mainly Latitude... don't need it or want it. Second portion of that issue is the shear size of the download, 12mb without sd card transfer capable.
Other thing that comes to mind in this article is the Market to Play rebrand. Used to be able to just read pushed out to the"Market" today, now it reads pushed out to the "google play store" today. Why change the name to such a mouth full, bad marketing (no pun intended) if you ask me.
